This is a really fascinating article. It begs the question though: where do we draw the line for what constitutes "ethics"? How do we define what traits better the human race?

Would you genetically alter your baby for the benefit of the human race? What types of traits would you give it?

seems like it'd set off endless one-upmanship. not good
 
Re: +Jason Kaneshiro 's comment... Isn't that what happened post *Nietzsche's Übermensch" concept? "Ubermensch - a person with great powers and abilities. demigod, superman · leader - a person who rules or guides or inspires others" Which lead to euthanasia both in Germany and here in the US (and the Nazi Holocaust) etc 
 
I think that you are taking this way too far. Like any technology it has it's upsides and it's downsides but to say that we shouldn't have it because people compete is the wrong argument altogether.
